Hi,

I am replacing rib and was interested to know if you guys could help me choose between a couple of boats:

Scorpion 8 meter with 225hp
or
Osprey Vipermax 7 meter with 225hp

thanks to all

Do you want speed or crusing? If it's speed the Osprey from what people say - also look at the Revenger - great hull.

Stepped or normal???

Hi and thanks,

I am looking for speed and leisure use.
the scorpion is a 8.1 "hardnose" year 2000 with 500 engine hours, not sure if hull is stepped.
the osprey is a vipermax with 300 hours, both have mercury motors.

Thanks to all

Kevin

Out of the two I would choose the Osprey, looks a lot smarter, better colour co-ordinated, plus I seem to remember reading on here that the Scorpion has some stress cracks on the deck.

Good luck whichever you choose.

Thanks Nauti Boy!

Do you refer to the actual boat for sale? You guys seem to know what boat is for sale, from where and by whom!
